Bowland Farm – Brand Development & Website Design for a Lancashire based Company
We were asked to create an identity for a new business ‘Bowland Farm’. The aim of Bowland Farm is to bring a farm experience to you, whether it’s their mobile farmyard or their hatching for schools programme, they encourage a friendly learning environment.
An identity was developed that reflected the fun learning experience. A series of illustrated farm animals were created for the logo making it easily distinctive and attractive to both children and adults alike. A series of figures were also developed for the extended marketing communications. Both elements are used for other forms of communication such as signage. labels, educational items, and on the website.
College Prospectus Design with Streamlined Production – Buckinghamshire College
• Brochure Design • Streamlined Design Production
Buckinghamshire College required their prospectus designing for the 2015 term to an extremely high standard, but also to a very tight schedule. Over 230 pages were required to be designed to a high level of layout style and typographic detail but all within a 5 day time period (for the 1st draft) – a very tall order if standard production techniques were employed.
However, this is where Northstar called upon its experience in the field of large multi-page document design and utilised its ‘Streamlined Production Processes’ and techniques to simplify the design process, control the page design and importantly hit the deadline.
By using the power of ‘Adobe Indesign’ plus raw client data provided in in Excel we were able to integrate the two to develop a series of templates and import the data. This allowed us to create the finished pages in a third of the time compared to more standard processes.
The added bonus of this approach is that typographic errors and design inconsistencies are greatly reduced which makes the final stage of proofing and any amendments much quicker and more accurate. It all results in a less fraught time for client and designer which can be a problem for this type of project.
